Description: This team-building activity uses the Cold War as a backdrop, while students work together to solve a series of puzzles and challenges — with the added pressure of working underground. In their dash to cross the finish line, they need to rely on teamwork and shared knowledge, as well as their problem-solving, conflict resolution, and communication skills.
